REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE
Following the close of the ballot on Tuesday, the National Executive Committee has considered this matter and congratulated members on the magnificent 100% yes vote to take industrial action.
The NEC has now taken the decision to instruct all Train Operator and Instructor Operator members at Leytonstone Traincrew Depot not to enter the sidings to reverse until the train has been physically checked and doors closed on porter buttons from 00:01 hours on Sunday 9th September 2018, until further notice.
While we remain available for talks to resolve this dispute, we cannot accept the Company’s dangerous cost-cutting plans to remove detrainment staff from the Waterloo and City Line at Waterloo Station and I am sure you will all stand by this industrial action to protect your safety and that of your passengers.
SUPPORT THE ACTION – SUPPORT YOUR UNION
I will keep you advised of all further developments.
